In this study, pure and Mo/W co-doped Bi-based superconducting samples were prepared by conventional solid-state reaction method. The effects of co-doping Mo and W were investigated by magneto-resistivity measurements (ρ-T) under various magnetic fields. The critical current density (Jc) was determined from the width of the hysteresis (M-H) curves using the Bean model and it was found that the pure sample showed the best value with a value of 1.53 × 104 A/cm2 at 10 K. The pinning force was calculated using the Jc values and it was found that the pure sample with the highest Jc value naturally had the maximum pinning force which is directly proportional to Jc. The flux pinning energies (i.e., activation energies) were determined using Arrhenius plots. A thermally activated flux flow (TAFF) model was used to calculate these energies. The activation energy ranged from 0.52302 to 0.286005 eV under 0 T. In addition, resistivity measurements (ρ-T) were used to calculate the coherence length (ξ(0)) at 10 K.
